Manon Ward: In a culture full of deceit and disaster, Manon’s upbeat agenda is a breath of fresh air, a reminder that life is what you make it. Manon fully intends to make it with a smile. Throughout her debut EP, Ward approaches her life and music with a laidback optimism, a dogged determination to shuck bad vibes and move toward the light. And to do it in her own way.

Manon made her major-venue debut during Cheyenne Frontier Days in July 2013, playing in front of 19,000 people as the opener for Alan Jackson and Randy Houser, then repeating the role a week later, leading into Toby Keith and Joe Nichols. She recognized that music couldn’t be much more than a sideline in Wyoming. Two years later, Manon relocated to Nashville, networking at club shows and introducing herself to songwriters and executives around town. She’s played the world-famous Bluebird Café, did a set for attendees when world famous motivational speaker Trent Shelton appeared in Nashville, and even performed at an informal barbecue where one of the party-goers had music-industry friends, and he put in a call to Johnny Garcia, a guitarist/music director with Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood. Garcia produced her debut tracks, enhancing the music’s radiant tone and fitting Manon’s work into its own lane, teetering between country and pop. Manon’s voice is playful and airy, while the songs are forward-looking, confident in their individuality and in their belief in the promise of tomorrow.
Dylan Rockoff: Nashville based Pop/R&B artist Dylan Rockoff first found success with the release of his debut single "Feeling Fine." Shortly after its release, the song was featured on NBC’s "The Today Show," and featured on Pat Monahan of Train's SiriusXM show, Train Tracks. His follow up EP, These Old Streets, peaked at no. 8 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and attracted more than 4 million global streams. Rockoff went on to open for Bon Jovi at Madison Square Garden, and play select tour dates supporting Vinyl Theatre, 311, The Maine, New Politics, Lew Watson, The Heydaze, and The Alternate Routes. In 2018, Rockoff teamed up with Nashville producer, Lucas Arens (P Diddy, JoJo), to work on what would become his 2019 effort. The first installments, "Awesome" & "Youre The One That I Want " (feat. Caroline Kole)" - released in March and April, respectively - became his highest performing singles to date, catching the attention of Kygo, Brendon Urie (Panic! At the Disco), influencer Michelle Phan, and many more. 

In recent months, Rockoff has strengthened his Tennessee ties, releasing "Competition” (co-written with Nashville’s Ava Suppelsa), and celebrating with packed performances at 3rd & Lindsley, The Basement, and Bonnaroo Works.
Rockoff is scheduled to release his next single, “Anymore,” through Kobalt in August. 
Tolan Shaw:

Tolan Shaw is an award-winning recording artist, a prolific songwriter, and an avid traveler. Based in Nashville but originally from southern California, Shaw is an acoustic troubadour with songs that are catchy and soulful, bluesy and melodic, poppy and sincere. 

In the past few years, Shaw won "Best Singer-Songwriter" at the San Diego Music Awards, wrote a song recorded by Jason Mraz and Renee Dominique, became a Taylor Guitars official artist, and took a 4 month journey to Southeast Asia (endorsed by Taylor and GoPro) to write music and create a travel-music video blog called “Wandersong.” Shaw has shared the stage with international acts such as Gavin DeGraw, Nate Ruess (fun), Jason Mraz, and the BoDeans, toured nationally and internationally, and achieved success writing and licensing songs with various TV networks and music libraries. 

In 2019, Shaw achieved his first major label songwriting credit with “Could I Love You Any More,” a duet by Filipino star Reneé Dominique and international superstar Jason Mraz, which quickly went to viral charts on Spotify and racked up millions of views on YouTube. He continues to write prolifically, releasing monthly “Living Room Sessions” live videos of new songs, penning songs for other artists and for film/tv, and performing his new release: “Let’s Go,” a travel anthem encouraging us all to get out and explore and push beyond our comfort zones. 

Chris Housman: Growing up outside a small Kansas town that boasted a population of 200, Chris Housman began his musical journey at the age of 7 when he taught himself to play the fiddle. After years of performing Bluegrass (while listening to Motown) and a move to Nashville, this singer/songwriter marinates his eclectic musical inspiration with small-town soul.
